Lufthansa has flown over 1,500 refugees safely to Germany so far

For the past week, Lufthansa has been setting up an airlift to fly refugees from the Central Asian state to Germany.

An Airbus 340 long-haul aircraft is used in each case. So far, the daily flights have brought to Frankfurt a total of more than 1,500 people.

Upon arrival in Frankfurt, a Lufthansa support team assists the new arrivals with food, drinks and clothing, and provides initial medical and psychological care. For the many children now landing in Frankfurt, a play and painting corner have been set up and toys donated.

Lufthansa will continue to operate additional flights from Tashkent in the coming days in coordination with the German Foreign Office.
